Learning Curve of VL for Intubation During CPR

2019-10-09 09:21:33 | BioPortfolio


This is a clinical study based on analysis of video-clip data of endotracheal intubation (ETI) using videolaryngoscope (VL) and clinical data for cardiopulmonary resuscitation patients between 2012.03.01.-2015.02.28.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the appropriate numbers of VL usages for successful ETI at first attempt during cardiopulmonary resuscitation.


Direct layngoscope (DL) is a basic tool for endotracheal intubation(ETI) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation(CPR). ETI during CPR has higher risks of failure or delayed success with frequent attempts, misplacement of the tube, and prolonged interruptions of chest compressions. The main problems associated with ETI relate to the inherently technical difficulty in using DL. VL have various advantages of fast learning curve and overall success comparing with the DL in non-arrest patients, but there was no known data of learnig curve of successful ETI during CPR.

This study tried to estimate the the appropriate numbers of VL usage for successful ETI at first attempt during CPR. So the investigators analyze the success rate, speed, trial number, incidence of complications, and hands-off time of ETI using VL which in real clinical setting. In addition, this study analyze the residency training term, total number of of VL usage using VL at that time.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.

Accidental injuries caused by brief high-voltage electrical discharges during thunderstorms. Cardiopulmonary arrest, coma and other neurologic symptoms, myocardial necrosis, and dermal burns are common. Prompt treatment of the acute sequelae, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is indicated for survival.

The use of sophisticated methods and equipment to treat cardiopulmonary arrest. Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) includes the use of specialized equipment to maintain the airway, early defibrillation and pharmacological therapy.

The omission of atrial activation that is caused by transient cessation of impulse generation at the SINOATRIAL NODE. It is characterized by a prolonged pause without P wave in an ELECTROCARDIOGRAM. Sinus arrest has been associated with sleep apnea (REM SLEEP-RELATED SINUS ARREST).

Occurrence of heart arrest in an individual when there is no immediate access to medical personnel or equipment.
